1942 Ford GPW Military Jeep
Chassis Number: 57290
The Willys MB and Ford GPW were the original production models of the famous jeep. Production began in late 1941 to early 1942, and proceeded with many small variations in appearance and function until mid-1945 when the war was ending.
Military Jeeps were used for an endless variety of tactical and support missions since their introduction to the U.S. military at the beginning of World War II. The world-wide success of the Jeep made it a favorite for generations of soldiers and civilians too.
